This was previously posted a couple of months ago, but went out of stock. Well, it's back in stock for now, although how long that will last once the HUKD crowd pounce on it is anyone's guess.

Oh, it's a refurb, by the way.

Now you’ll never have to argue over the remote control again, this Humax PVR-9150T digital TV recorder allows you to record 1 channel whilst watching another. Whether you’re arguing over what to watch or can’t decide, you’ll never miss your favourite television programs again. This recorder features a 160GB hard drive allowing you to record up to 120 hours of entertainment. It also has an RGB output and 2 SCART sockets allowing you to easily connect this digital TV recorder to other audio visual components.

Good price for quality product
banned#3
wont take long before these are sold out again

a steal at this price.
#4
thanks for this bagged one for my parents

note you can actually record 2 channel and watch a 3rd (as long as the one your watching is from the same family as one of the ones your recording eg record itv and bbc 1 and watch bbc2)

Limited life but clearly reflected in the price. Many areas don't even have HD yet, will be a long time before they turn off the old Freeview transmissions.

Due to the low bandwidth availability to freeview , SD freeview will not be turned off any time soon. they simply do not have capacity to replace SD channels with HD versions, so this box has plenty of life left.

It is expected that current Freeview channels, broadcast in h.263, will move to the T2 transmissions (h.264) in order to reduce bandwidth and save costs.

T2 doesn't necessarily mean HD, just a different transmission standard. Not all programming on T2 is HD at all.

Same product £81.65 at Humax Direct, so a bit of a bargain.

No longer sold new by Humax incidentally, the only standard Freeview PVR they sell is the PVR9300T500 (bigger HDD & HDMI) at £189.

"It is expected" is different from definitely. What about the millions of TV sets in circulation and freeview boxes with 1st gen DVB-T freeview which are not capable of receiving DVB-T2. Perhaps within 20 years all transmissions might be DVB-T2, but not now or the forseeable future. It is not a valid reason for putting off someone buying this box. It is a great deal.

Totally right, it's an older model but great at this price. You'd prob only look to get a max of 4-5 years use out of it anyway
#15
can recordings be transferred to an external hdd and if so any limitations on capacity? fat 32 etc?
#16
Cracking price for a channel recorder, last I looked there wasn't much to shout about where Freesat HD content was concerned, BBC1 was it for me, ITV HD wasn't available to me for some regional reason (Scotland).



Just ordered lol she'll do in the meantime seeing as Sky's been cancelled.

£56.99 when you factor in store pickup, cashback of 3% and £1.18 in Clubcard points

Quite simply, they will stop working. Just like the analogue receivers will shortly be ceasing to function in many areas.

Read above. I wasn't the one suggesting that, I was merely suggesting that it was reflected in the price. This is an absolute bargain for what you get. For sure, current core channels will remain on DVB-T for a long time but I simply don't expect the "digital" channels to remain there for the duration. Once DVB-T2 bandwidth is all taken up, they'll be wanting to turn off DVB-T to free up some space - just as they are with analogue now.

Not directly, you need to go via a PC. No limitation except speed, the USB port is painfully slow.

Bargain at this price.
I paid £79.97 before Christmas & very happy with it.

I had same issue with a Humax Freesat HD box... I could not get ITV HD in NI. I just put in an English postcode on the setup menu, retuned and viola I was then able to watch ITV HD.
#23
Not the latest model but a great buy.
#24
my trusty DHD4000 has died and I was looking for a HD recorder but still too expensive and not much choice. I think I will may get this as a stop gap solution
#25
Is it IDE or SATA drive and can the hard drive be upgraded to a higher capacity?

Has OFCOM actually stated any intention to migrate more muxes to DVB-T2? I don't recall seeing any papers on their website. OK it would make sense, but backwards compatibility issues would be a nightmare (again). Has to be 15 years away at least; depends what timescale you mean by 'the duration' really.

Of course they do.
You won't be able to watch the HD channels but the standard definition ones are still going to be there for a very long time

Should be able to, but you need a suitable adapter (CAM).

Thanks. I got one £20 dearer just before Christmas and wanted to get another at the later reduced price, but it always was out of stock again by the time I got round to checking [form email restock notification] and 'gave up' in the end.

Cheers :)
#35
Great offer - thanks OP. Have just ordered one for my Mum, which means she can keep her Panasonic CRT TV for a couple more years and can finally ditch the VCR!!! X)

Nice to know, I'll bear that in mind when I eventually go the FreeSat route, this is only a stop gap, got shot of Sky and missing recording capabilities badly, unlike the £50 odd quid paid to Sky :)

Anybody know what Tesco's warranty policy is on refurbs? Can't see anything mentioned so do we assume 12 months as normal?

I was just wondering that myself, assuming its the store 12 months seeing as nothing to the contrary is stated.

Humax even do 12 months warranty on refurbs
